Mobile payment solutions that empower the financial world
Today there are more active mobile devices than people on the planet. These gadgets are impacting our lives like never before – adding digital convenience to our fast-paced lifestyles. Making in-store and online mobile payments can now be added to the list of growing conveniences.
Turning your smartphone or tablet into a credit card requires a perfect balance of speed, convenience and above all security. Strong authentication and tokenization are vital for safe and secure mobile payment solutions.

This fully customizable solution securely digitalizes your mobile payment services, giving customers an all-inclusive pass to the convenient world of mobile payment, both in-store and online.

Now more than ever, consumers are eager to run their lives right from their smartphones – banking, grocery shopping, heating their homes, the list goes on and on. Not surprisingly, the demand for mobile payment is also on the rise.

Integrated loyalty capabilities
AIRPASS was built with customer loyalty in mind. Easily integrate your loyalty programs – coupons, promotional offers, etc. – to encourage customers to adopt your mobile payment system, improve customer awareness, and intensify and personalize customer relations.
Modular and flexible by design
Banks, retailers and credit card companies all have different requirements. The AIRPASS suite is designed to meet the specific requirements of all mobile payment players. Built on a modular platform that is highly flexible and customizable, the secure element can be software-based (HCE, SE in the Cloud), SIM-based or hybrid (SIM-based and SE in the Cloud). Depending on your needs, you're free to choose one or several components from the AIRPASS suite: Airpass Mobile App, Airpass Mobile Server, Airpass Tokenization, and Airpass Crypto.
Your main concern is security – an essential mobile payment component that in the past was built on complex systems involving multiple actors. Mobile network operators or device manufacturers controlled the chip-based secure element needed to secure mobile payments, meaning financial institutions couldn't deploy mobile payment solutions on their own. Unlike the closed, secure environment of the traditional electronic payment chain connecting smart cards with payment terminals, the versatile mobile environment is by nature very vulnerable. It's myriad applications are not always easy to isolate. That's why mobile payment services have yet to really take off.
Leveraging the power of HCE
As mobile payment now takes center stage in the payment industry, banks risk losing significant visibility to independent services like Apple Pay, as customers tend to see added value in those services rather than those offered by their bank.
Host Card Emulation (HCE) technology takes away much of the complexity, allowing banks to regain control of the entire mobile payment process. Often referred to as cloud payment, HCE puts the secure element in the cloud so that your mobile device can act as a contactless payment card without an embedded physical secure element on the device. Consumer payment information is stored as a token in the cloud, only accessible by downloading limited use keys that ensure data protection. With our complete HCE suite, your financial institution can offer its own in-store mobile payment solution and meet consumer needs directly.
Tokenization and biometrics
The security of HCE is augmented by tokenization and authentication technology. Your primary account number (PAN) is replaced by a token, which is linked to the "virtual cards" in your mobile wallet. Only the token is transmitted to the merchant system through your mobile device, so your sensitive data remains securely stored at the bank. Tokens are meaningless to hackers, so your data stays safe. We also use a unique, sophisticated encryption and obfuscation (Link to Airpass Crypto Service page) to add smartcard-like security to the mobile payment process.
Biometric authentication can add another layer of security and convenience to in-store payments. Rather than entering your PIN code, you simply place a finger on your touchscreen to authorize payment. Facial recognition technology is also available for an even more robust solution.
Our AIRPASS mobile payment solution leverages HCE, tokenization and strong authentication technologies to ensure security and convenience for in-store mobile payment.
Many countries have moved to EMV chip technology to significantly curb counterfeit card fraud at the retail point of sale, forcing criminals to turn their attention to committing card-not-present (CNP) fraud online or via telephone. It is more difficult to authenticate CNP transactions. Credit card information is static – anyone with your card number, expiration dates and CVV can use it – and ecommerce transactions are online and not in person.
Morpho has several solutions to secure online card payments, such as 3D Secure and Dynamic CVV. For mobile payments, we offer AIRPASS MCVV – a mobile payment solution that generates dynamic single-use payment tokens to reduce online payment fraud and increase customer convenience and confidence.
This customizable mobile payment system complies with EMVCo token management policy and can be used in addition or to replace 3D Secure, without having an impact on merchants.
